Serving Hickory, North Carolina Since 1966
A-1 Pest Control is your source for Hickory radon testing and mitigation services as well as pest control services in Hickory and surrounding areas. Our team has been working hard to keep homes and businesses safe since 1966.
Since radon is an odorless, invisible, and tasteless gas, it can be difficult to detect without proper testing. When our team is on the case, you can count on us to take the proper precautions to keep your family safe.
Effective Radon Testing & Mitigation Services
Radon exposure can pose extreme health dangers and even death. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that radon is responsible for more than 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. every year. This is why you want to have your home tested for radon and have it removed as soon as possible.
A-1 Pest Control offers two types of radon testing as well as mitigation services to keep you and your family safe.
Charcoal Canister Radon Testing
When you choose this type of testing, two charcoal canisters will be placed on the lowest level of your home or business for 48 hours. Results from the canisters will be available in 7-10 days and will detect if there are dangerous radon levels present. The results will also give you average radon levels. If high levels are found, our team will go over the mitigation steps you’ll want to take to address the problem.
Continuous Monitor Radon Testing
This type of Hickory radon testing requires a continuous monitor to be set up in the lowest section of your home for 48 hours, typically in the basement or crawlspace. Once the 48 hours are over and the test is complete, you will receive the results. If high levels of radon are detected, we will tell you about the mitigation system that can eliminate them.
Radon Mitigation System
When high levels of radon are found in your home, A-1 Pest Control offers a radon mitigation system to address the problem. The system creates a vacuum to vent radon up and out of the building where it will dissipate. This is a safe process that poses no health risks.
Our team will return about two weeks later to ensure that radon levels have dropped. You can count on A-1 for annual testing for the radon system and any repairs. Be sure to also ask about the warranty that is available for the radon mitigation system as well.
